    Have a Samsung J3 2017 (SM327). About a week ago, noticed that incoming & outgoing calls going to/from someone in my Contacts only shows the number, not the Contact name, so I often have no idea who's calling me. But when I hang up and look in the Recent call log, the Contact name shows up correctly there. I have tried every permission, every setting possible. Spent an hour with an ATT tech - nothing. Did a factory restore - nothing. Took it to a Samsumg authorized serviced center and had it completely reflashed. Fixed the prob for 2 days, then reappeared. Any info?
    Someone posted that if your contact does not have a phone number assoicated with it then you need to go to more, settings and then phone and click that tab that says "hide contacts without phone numbers". I am a first time Android Samsung user - now for 3 months and its just yet another reason why it sucks. sorry

    Welcome to Android Central! That's not the issue that's being discussed here. The problem is that incoming calls from a contact who is entered into the user's Contacts app (with both name and number) are being displayed in Caller ID with their number only, not their name (and it's due to the Call Protect app).

    I'm not sure why it sucks to have the option to hide contacts that don't have a phone number. Are you saying it should be automatic? People often have contacts entered that don't have a phone number, but they may still want to see if the person is in their contacts.
